Particle physicists brought cosmic-ray science to the heart of the Château-d’Oex International Balloon Festival.
Advanced niobium-tin accelerator magnets for the LHC upgrade developed at US labs and CERN are also carving a path towards future energy-frontier colliders.
Though several mysteries remain, the ALICE collaboration has uncovered evidence that quark-gluon plasmas with extreme angular momenta become polarised.
In a clinical world-first, a proton beam has been used to treat a patient with a ventricular tachycardia, which causes unsynchronised electrical impulses that prevent the heart from pumping blood.
He was the last of the leaders of the original seven physics groups formed at SLAC.
Since the early 1960s his vision and organisational skills helped shape experimental particle physics in Czechoslovakia and Czechia.
Updated measurements by LHCb of the angular distributions of a rare neutral B meson decay add fresh intrigue to the flavour puzzle.
Tollestrup was one of the world’s most influential modern physicists, writes George Zweig.
Physicists have taken a step towards demonstrating the technical feasibility of a muon collider.
Researchers trace second repeating fast radio burst to ordinary galaxy, suggesting that extreme environments are not required.
